Kaspersky Lab informed its customers that although Microsoft Corporation will end support for the Windows XP SP3 operating system in April 2014, Kaspersky Lab‘s corporate protection solution Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows and consumer protection solutions Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 will continue to support the Microsoft Windows XP operating system in accordance with Kaspersky Lab product lifecycles.
According to Kaspersky Lab’s scheduled product lifecycles, Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows will continue to support the Windows XP operating system (Service Pack 3 only) until the second quarter of 2016. Kaspersky Lab also plans to maintain support for the operating system in at least two future generations of Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Kaspersky Internet Security products.
Kaspersky Lab invests substantial resources to ensure that its products work properly on different types and versions of operating systems. Although the Windows XP operating system was released more than 10 years ago and three newer operating systems have subsequently been released, Kaspersky Lab realizes that many PC users still prefer this system. This is why Kaspersky Lab has no plans to end support of Windows XP in the near future. Kaspersky Lab is the world’s largest privately held vendor of endpoint protection solutions.
